Q: buzzing sound while playing audio

Theres this annoying buzzing sound while playing music or any kind of audio, this just popped up today it was fine yesterday, and I didn't update/install anything.

Hello,


Starting about a week ago whenever any audio is being played through my computer (speaker or headphone) I will hear a buzzing sound and occasionally the audio with skip. This happens weather I am playing audio that is being streamed from the internet or that is on my computer directly.

I have tried several things to fix this problem including installing all windows updates that are available as well as updating my audio drivers.

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My computer model is hp pavilion dv7t quad 6100 and I have IDT high definition audio codec driver version 6.10.6381.0 which my computer says is the latest driver version. Updating to this version has not solved the problem, however.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is additional info that is neccesary, please let me know and I will post it.

A:IDT High Def Audio, buzzing sound when playing any sort of audio.

Unplug the speakers from the PC and see if you still get the buzz with headphones. Some "buzz" problems can be related to "AC power ground loop" problems if some separately powered devices are connected.

Noise and skipping are problems that have been posted here before. There is no "one fix" for that. There are possible hardware problems, drivers (including video drivers), Interrupt issues, Wi Fi caused, etc.

Skipping can be because the other device that is on the shared Interrupt that the sound is on is interrupting the sound. Sound is always on a shared interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. You can try this: go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it and some times put it on a different shared IRQ.

I am experiencing a buzzing sound when I play music online.  I primarily listen to music through the microblogging site Tumblr.  For example, if I had a song playing for a minute or so and opened a new tab I will hear a buzzing sound for anywhere between 2 to 10 seconds.  Other times, particularly during songs that are longer, the audio will fail and I will get an error message with a red x on the song I clicked.  Neither of these problems happen all the time.  The buzz is more prominent and seems to happen more frequently when I am opening and closing tabs.  
 
I have narrowed this down somewhat.  It does not happen when I play an actual CD in the drive.  It does not happen when I listen to a song on Youtube.  It does not happen if I play an mp3 that I have saved on my computer.  It does not happen when streaming a podcast.  I have listened to podcasts that are over an hour long and did not get the buzzing or failed audio message.  It does not happen in Internet Explorer.
 
This seems to be related to tumblr sites and/or Chrome.  I have pasted a link as an example of a song where this occurs.

A:Buzzing sound when playing music

You can safely remove flash players re-install, I think your plugin may be out one version... should still work though, but might help. Updating Shockwave is also a good idea as sometimes the technologies are interdependent.
 
Could be a Tumblr bug also... I doubt it is Chrome. Have you looked at the Tumblr support? (if there is such a thing)

Hi everyone,

4 months ago freezing problems started with my laptop and running chkdsk and hdd regenator repaired bad sectors and this relieved my pc health making it better than before, but not totally sufficient.

However in the past 2 months I am suffering from a new set of freezing issues which occur so often and i could not manage to solve or get any improvement. Basically, it happens
1)every 20-40mins and freezing lasts about 5minutes. if I am playing a music video on a website, then the speaker would be forcing itself to play the music for less than a minute which would be heard as buzzing, and then it will stop.
2) Same type of freezing also occurs when a game is open while all browsers and music players are closed in the background.
3) In rare occasions no freezing occurs but skype crashes during a voice call giving an error related to shockwave. I believe this could be a related problem but not sure.

here some more info:
-graphics driver is updated to latest version and downgrading back to the older versions did not help
-no disk errors could be found using chkdsk and hdd regenarator scans/repairs
-Uninstalling flash player and installing/upgrading to the latest version did not work
-cleaning cache using ccleaner, diskdefragmenting using popular softwares, or running popular computer care taker softwares did not help.
-windows 7 has the latest updates.

Hello!

Operating system: W7 Homepremium 64bit

This has been happening for months, everytime when I scroll in google chrome, panning and zooming images through Windows Photo Viewer, my computer makes a buzzing sound through the external speakers not the internal pc speaker, typicaly in a weird frequency when I do scroll/pan/zoom. This also happens in some other apps but surprizingly it does not happen on Mozilla firefox.

By the way, my google chrome is updated to the latest version. Sometimes it gets really annoying as the frequency disrupts my ear.

Thank you very much. All help is appreciated!

Yesterday I needed a tool for conversion of MOV files to WMV files and I found this program:

Free Convert MOV AVI to FLV Flash WMV Converter - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

During the install, it said that some of my media drivers were "obsolete" or something like that and offered to delete them from the registry. The dialog box said "Yes - recommended". I clicked "Yes" to all prompts - there were at least 15-20 of them. Then the program installer installed some codec packs. I am pretty sure that ffdshow and K-Lite were installed although I don't know which version. I think there was also some 3rd type of codec pack but I can't remember the name. It also installed some strange version of media player classic (1.3.1976.0).

Anyway, the program didn't actually work after installation, it was shareware and asked me for money to convert entire files. So I uninstalled it from the Control Panel/Programs.

Unfortunately, now I have a problem when playing ALL media files. It manifests as a strange intermittent buzzing sound during music playback (in Winamp, Windows media player and Foobar - they all have this problem). Also, the buzzing sound appears during playback of video files in KMPlayer or Windows Media Player (it seems that in WMP the problem is more pronounced).

Hey,

Basically started last Friday, i installed crisis and played it for a bit and everything worked fine. I then installed black and white 2 and after 20mins of playing it the screen went blank and there was a buzzing noise coming from my speakers. I switched off the computer and uninstalled black and white 2 and crisis. I then began playing LOTRO and the problem still persisted! So I decided to do a disk defrag, there was no change. I then restored by PC to a a couple of days before I installed crisis and Black and white 2 but its still happening whenever I play LOTRO, but this time the blank screen is not accompanied by the buzzing noise from the speakers.
I really dont know what to do and this is becoming a bit frustrating. It only seems to happen when I'm playing games.

A:Routine crashing with buzzing sound when playing video games.

All except last one showed up a WHEA error stating that there was a timeout failure of the northbridge bus between CPU and RAM. Commonly this is due to a mobo, RAM or CPU failure. Just to make sure, if you believe your system is stable enough, you can attempt updating your BIOS for your mobo as that can commonly fix things. In most cases however, this is a problem that will only be resolved by swapping hardware.

If you wish, you can run some hardware tests as followed in the order given:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better.

So I just updated my Toshiba laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and now I'm having audio problems. At first after I upgraded I had no sound. I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling my Realtek audio driver. Now thankfully I got my sound back, but now whenever I play audio the sound isn't clear anymore Especially when I use YouTube. I updated my Realtek audio driver from version 6.0.1.7541 to 6.0.1.7586 and I still hear the buzzing! I tried audio troubleshooting and it said the problem couldn't be identified. What do I do?

A:Continuous audio buzzing but with sound!

Hi there and welcome to the forum

Have you checked and confirmed you are using the correct audio playback device in your audio properties?

Have you got the speakers (and other settings) configured correctly in audio playback device?

Have you also checked to confirm whether running the driver in combination with Toshiba Audio Enhancement stops the speakers buzzing?

Have you tried an earlier driver version? For instance 6.0.1.7023 for example.

Hey guys. So I finally got finished with my Cosmos Mod (which I hope to have up and posted on the forums soon ) but I'm having some trouble with buzzing and crackling with the headphones plugged into the front jack.

My Cosmos case comes equipped with the HD Azalia front audio connector in addition to the AC '97 audio connector. When completing my wire management and sleeving, I decided to remove the AC '97 connector since I only needed the HD Azalia connector, which is attached to my Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer sound card. So I simply cut the AC '97 connector off. I did not cap each of the exposed remaining wires as they were very small in diameter and I figured I would just sleeve over it and try it.

Problem: When I plug any of my three pairs of different headphones to the front panel I have buzzing and crackling whether games or programs are making sound or not. I especially have crackling when I move my Razer Death Adder around, which seems really weird. I've got the Death Adder plugged directly into my Logitech G15. By the way, I've also got my wireless Logitech mouse plugged in and when I move that one around, there is no ill effect on the sound. ??

First post, hope I'm doing this right.Hi guys, about 3 weeks ago I purchased a Lenovo ideapad 110. It's a great laptop, however, about a couple weeks ago, the laptop started making a loud grinding/buzzing sound when playing audio. The sound only lasts for second, but it's quite jarring, to the point where I have to take out my earphones and take a break from what ever I was watching/listening to. It also happens without earphones, so those aren't the problem. YouTube is when it mainly occurs, however other sites with audio have it too. I've tried playing with the audio settings and updating the drivers, it worked for a few days, but the sound has returned. My previous laptop, a hp did this too, but never this frequently, so what exactly is this?

I have tried all the usual things since I am used to re installing xp many times . not muted . DG card selected as default . Speakers set to proper mode in zonar app .

I tried using the realtek audio on my motherboard , which does work in XP . Not working in 7 .

If you have the RealTek enabled, disable it in the BIOS. It can cause conflicts and potentially the problem you have. Windows 7 will only allow one default audio playback device, unlike XP that would allow more.

My machine got infected with Viruses when it was rebuilt and the Virus protection software was not reloaded!

Over the last 10 days I have used McAfee, XoftSpySE, RegCure and Spyware Doctor to remove the majority of Viruses.

I still have one very annoying virus which none of the above can solve.

It is not always the same audio feed, they come in many lanuguages. Just this morning an American news feed started while I was checking my e-mail. There is no program running when the feed is playing, I can only assume it is some kind of process with a timer or a triggering mechanism to start playing.

A:Sound/Audio Starts Playing Automatically

Sounds to me like you’ve got a rogue process running in there somewhere, and it’s probably either coming from a system start up location or running as a scheduled task. Looks to me like you’ve already made a good start with software to track this down, however, I’ve personally found AdAware to be the most reliable at this sort of thing, so perhaps you could give that a go (available here http://tinyurl.com/24c43q) and see what it turns up?

To check the Scheduled Tasks list, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Scheduled Tasks and see if there’s anything you don’t recognise in there; by default, this list should be empty, with only the ‘Add Scheduled Task’ icon displayed.

To check your Startup list, run MSCONFIG from the Start Menu’s RUN command, and then selecting the STARTUP tab. Look towards the bottom of the list for anything you don’t recognise in there, and Google it to see if it’s recognised as malware.

If you’ve still found nothing, then the next step involves searching in the registry, which if you’ve never done it before, can be a bit daunting, however, it may turn out to be the only thing short of an OS reinstall that sorts things like this out.

So I built this computer a few weeks ago with Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything sound-wise has been working til a few days ago, but I have been working through some video problems.
Since this started on Friday, the sound mixer/volume control shows sound playing. But nothing comes out the speakers. When I click the top, it doesn't say 'speakers', it says 'Realtek audio'. When I click that, the sound window comes up and under "jacks" it says "rear optical jack." The top says S/PDIF. Those are both formats that I have never used on this system. I've always used only the rear panel analog jack.

Anyways, I feel like I've tried everything under the sun and I'm close to RMA'ing the motherboard. It's that bad. Anyhelp is uber appreciated. Thanks guys

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section, your "Speakers" should be set as the default playback device. It sounds like the digital is now set as playback.

I've spent alot of time to set the setting but it's not working, I updated the latest driver(realtek) and default the setting. The result is the same.

The audio is not balanced, like when you play a song, the bass will overcome the main voice, or the vocal will overcome the main voice.

Can anyone explain this?
Gladly appreciate for any help.

Hello game333,

I know what you mean and its hence why i don't use it.

But for now, how are you listening to your music/sounds?
Headphones or the built in speakers?

Try lowering the SRS WOW effect and see if that makes a difference.

Also, i would highly assume that the SRS is more suited to surround sound speaker systems but that is just speculation.

My computer died recently, so I dug out some fossil from way back to at least listen to music/watch some movies until I can buy a new one(Which won't be anytime soon). I hooked up the HDD from the dead PC to this one and everything is working OK(all things considered). However, I can't seem to be enable the sound. On paper everything seems fine even the "needles" are twitching(see image in the link) when I play an audio file but sound won't come out. The only Playback device available in the list is "Digital Audio (S/PDIF) 2- High Definiton Audio Device".

I checked the drivers and everything is up to date.
I hooked up the Speakers to the laptop they're working fine.

Help me out please, without the sound this thing is basically glorified texting machine.

Yesterday I started getting a rhythmic (stays in-time, not random) popping/clicking sound whenever I play certain audio sources. This happens on any of my devices whether they are connected directly to my computer, or to my computer via my external USB amp/DAC (an O2+ODAC Combo from JDSLabs). Youtube audio, for example, causes it, even if the Youtube video is muted in the browser. The popping/clicking sounds remain for an indeterminate time after the audio stops, ranging from a few seconds, to indefinitely (until I restart my computer). There doesn't seem to be any other performance/functional problems with my computer that I have noticed.

The only change I've made to my computer recently was I replaced one of my two monitors 2 days ago, but it was working just fine all that day (without this problem) until I woke up the next day.

I have tried increasing the minimum processor usage (as I've seen recommended for problems like this one) to no avail. I've also run both my anti-virus (Emsisoft Anti-Virus) and Malwarebytes.

Based on research I've already done, it could be a DPC Latency problem (seems to have similar symptoms), but I am having a hard time figuring out if that is the case, and if so, how to fix it. I installed the Windows Performance Toolkit, and have run xperf. I did it as follows:

I ran

I have homebuilt core i7 930 running an asus p5 premium. Whether I use onboard sound (realtek), sound blaster pcix titanium, or sound blaster omni usb, I get strange behavior where the sound will drop out while I'm watching a tv app (hdhomerun, or kodi as well), or listening to music.. at random times, could be 5 minutes, could be 45 minutes. To get the sound back, if I click the speaker icon and click the bar that plays the windows ding, it plays (a little crackly during the first few milliseconds, then clear, like it's waking up) and then sound plays normally until this happens again. So it's propagating through multiple different drivers. I read somewhere that audio devices can sleep (I suppose laptops mainly? Maybe I read it wrong).

Did some searches, found nothing similar, most are "no sound". Thoughts?

Thanks

Just built a new computer, and everything went smooth except that a small but sometimes very noticeable buzzing comes out my headphones. I cant really explain it other than its a high pitched buzz, that changes frequency depending on whats on my screen. On the desktop, or web browser its very fast, while when I go into a game it slows down but becomes louder. And when something is loading, as in when i bring up firefox, it pauses for a second, then continues buzzing, or when loading a game, at the loading screen it is completely quiet, then when I am in game, it continues. Another wierd thing is, if I am scrolling through a long webpage or text file really fast, the buzz will vary depending on how fast Im scrolling.
I actually had to take my sub woofer out because i t was amplifying the buzz probably almost 20-fold, so I'm going straight from headphones to the computer.
Also, changing the sound volume on the computer does not change the buzz.

Now, as far as I know, i have the latest sound drivers, I went to my motherboards website, and downloaded the audio driver for the gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L. Other than that I dont know what else it could be.
Here's a dxdiag, if that helps.
(I did all the tests earlier, they all came out successful)

Hello! As the title says whenever I'm playing a game it'll randomly freeze for a couple seconds and buzz/loop the current sound through my speakers. Sometimes it won't recover and I'll have to shut off my computer manually. Sometimes after a long freeze it will say Display driver crashed but recovered, I've tried updating my drivers multiple times but nothing. I'm honestly not that computer savy, I've cleaned my computer multiple times and clean started it. Works for a bit but then right back at it. It could be that my graphics card isn't strong enough for the games I play? Doubtful but I'm not sure, especially since I turn down all the graphics. It usually only occurs if I'm playing a game and have a tab open or something. Also did a computer info scan that I'll attach. Thank you for your time! Truly do appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I finished building my first PC, and it seems to be doing pretty great for the most part. But when I was playing a game, I noticed a light buzzing sound coming from my PC after a while. I then closed the game and the noise went away after a couple of seconds. A little while later I restarted the game, and after (if I had to guess) 15-20 minutes, the buzzing noise came back. It's not super loud or anything, but definitely noticeable and kind of annoying, and so far only seems to be coming up while running a game.

(updated my PC specs on my profile to show what I'm using.)

I've got the following setup:

ASUS M4A78T-E
AMD Phenom II X4 810
A-DATA DDR3 1600 RAM (3 x 2GB running at 1333)
ATI Radeon HD4350

I'm running Windows 7 RC1 64-bit

I'm having issues playing any sort of media file. Doesn't matter if it is a low bit-rate MP3 or a huge MKV HD file. The files play, but occasionally, it's like the computer hesitates/hangs very slightly and there is a noticeable audible 'buzz'. So for instance, a song or movie will be playing and all of a sudden, there will be a quick 'buzz' noise. The buzzes don't last but a fraction of a second, but they're very annoying. It almost seems like this happens when the machine is having 'multi-task', but I don't know why that would happen b/c I consider this a pretty fast machine capable of playing an MP3 while surfing the web.

Any thoughts?

Hello All,

I have built my own PC and I've been facing random freezing with buzzing sound issue while playing almost all games (Battlefield 3, Assassins Creed II and Revelation, CoD - MW 3, and Black Ops, Batman Arkham City and recently Saints Row 3) this freezing issue is really random and can happen anytime during gameplay.
I've updated all drivers (graphics, sound, BIOS etc). One thing to note is some of these games work without freezing for hours when I set Affinity to two CPUs but when I start playing Saints Row 3 with Affinity set to 2 CPUs the games becomes very slow and if I increase CPUs then it freezes after few minutes. I've tried to reseat the heatsink with thermal paste added two cabinate fans one blowing out and one in but this has not solved my problem.
I ran HWiNFO64 tool and saved log file of various readings while playing Saints Row 3 when freezing issue happened and I do not see any heating problem.

I would really appreciate any help to solve this issue.

But the problem is, i hear BIOS booting sound-"Beep!"ing instead
of system error sound(like when you type "abcdefg" in run, low piano tone sound comes out with
X mark error msg).
That's all the problem i got.
Only error sound is the problem.
My sound card driver is alright.

I'll cut to the chase....

Lenovo T430 Laptop, Window 7 sp1, 64 bit

Just today this started. I haven't had any issues before. When playing anything audio (e.g., YouTube, ZeroPunctuation, MP4, MP3, any audio) there is the occasional buzzing/static/cracking noise (kinda like what you'd hear fiddling with a headphone jack) coming from the speakers. It happens regardless of volume (hardware volume, or software setting), or whether I'm using the laptops speakers or headphones (I've tried with various headphones, including some quality BOSE) making me conclude it's not the tweeter or cone of the speaker itself.

So far I've tried updating all the platforms like Flash to see if the issue was that. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek driver, disabling/renabling through Device Manager and restarting, and even using the Troubleshoot Audio Playback.

This is driving me insane as having good audio is a major component of my daily activities. Thank for the help
